We have a problem with people saying they are missing items from their packages. So I want to place a camera above each shipping desk to record every box that is packaged to show what is put inside the boxes and the shipping labels that are stuck onto the boxes. If someone makes a claim I want to be able to pull the footage and see if we made a mistake or if the customer is scamming us.
The shipping tables are 6' wide but could narrow the FOV down to about 3' if need be to read the labels. In that case, I could use an 8mm lens about 5 foot above the desk to give a 3' wide image. With a 5MP camera that is 864PPF. Not sure if this translate to 72 dpi but if so seems like should be able to read the 4" x 6" shipping labels? Would a basic 5MP bullet camera do the trick?
Any recommendation on a Hikvision POE IP camera that would be good for this? Or I guess any brand that would work with a modern Hikvision NVR.
